since I am awake because of cigarette smoke discomfort, rain storm mini flood leak in kitchen and addiction to the internet I will share this pic of my newest tech acquisition: laptop back pack from Microsoft. First MS product that I think I will like (depending on durabillity, if one of the straps rips within a few months I'll be back with a rave about my wasted $60) since the calendar book I got from them in the 80s. That calendar was great. So much useful tech info in it that I've kept it still. and why am i really awake: because I'm spending the first day of my long weekend vacation going to work to finish what I couldn't finish yesterday because shit was blowing up.
